Rockin' Green #Review and #Giveaway {Closed}

While I was pregnant I entered a holiday giveaway and much to my surprise, I won! My prize included a bag of Rockin Green laundry soap. I had heard a lot about it already, while researching different forums about different diapers for my soon-to-be cloth diapered baby. I was afraid to use it because I didn't want to waste it (something I look back and laugh at myself for now). Buggie was born and I could not wait to do my first load of cloth diaper laundry! Anyone who knows me, also knows that laundry is a big deal to me. I get a little ocd.. but that's a story for another day LOL I fell in love instantly, and soon we began using it for all of our laundry. For about 4 months now, I've used it for everything, and have not had any problems. J's clothes no longer stink when he comes home off of the road. I wash them and that's it! No more dinginess, and any smells are gone in one wash. And Bug's diapers? My worries and fears of diapers not get clean enough are long gone. Once a month I rock a soak to get out any stains that may have set in and just give them an extra cleaning.

We wash every 2 or 3 days, and use our apartments top-loading machine. I do a full wash on cold with no detergent or additives, then a full wash on hot with 2 tablespoons of Rockin Green Hard Rock. I also hang dry all of Bug's diapers. With this routine I've had no troubles with stink, and rarely see a stain.  

A little info about Rockin Green:
"Rockin’ Green is free of dyes, enzymes, whiteners and brighteners. So you can rest assured that it is safe for all diapers."
"Rockin’ Green is made of safe, phosphate free ingredients which makes it good for the planet and gentler on your little ones."
"Ingredients: sodium carbonate , sodium percarbonate, natural chelating agents, sodium sulfate, biodegradable surfactants, natural fragrance oils (if scented is chosen)"
It also comes in 3 formulas:
"Soft - this formula is designed for those that have sensitive little ones or soft water.
Classic - this is the original formula, and is great for those with moderate hard water, or just those that are battling with stinkies. Comes in unscented and scented varieties.
Hard - This formula is designed for the most troubling of water types."
Rockin' Green has graciously  offered to send one lucky winner a bag of 45/90 load soap in thier choice of formula and scent!
I'd love to give 2 more of you the opportunity to try it out for yourself, so I purchased a few samples from Abby's Lane! Two additional winners will each get 1 (one) sample of Classic Rock in the scent Motley Clean and 1 (one) sample of Classic Rock in the scent Rage against the Raspberry. Each sample is good for 2 loads in a top-loading machine or 4 loads in a front-loading/HE machine.
